DAY 2 INTERSECTIONALITY
“Intersectionality is a prism, for seeing the way in which various forms of inequality often operate together and exacerbate each other” Source: Kimberly Crenshaw
We tend to talk about race inequality as separate from inequality based on gender, class, sexuality or immigrant status. What’s often missing is how some people are subject to all of these, and the experience is not just the sum of its parts. The interconnected nature of social categorisations such as race, class, and gender, regarded as creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage. Intersectionality is a lens through which you can see where power comes and collides, where it interlocks and intersects.
